Grammar to tell stories about the past.pdf


  • This episode is based on Episode 003 of my podcast, True Form. See Links above for where to listen.
  • In this podcast episode, I tell two stories from my past. This Opal Library episode analyzes the grammar I used.
  • I used: Past Simple, Present Simple, Present Progressive, Past Progressive, Past Perfect, Used to, Would.
  • Depending on your level of speaking, you can use only the Past Simple, or you can use all of them.
  • I encourage only using the Past Simple because it works perfectly for all past situations, but if you are ready for the other ones, go ahead!!!
  • The variations in verb tense are mostly for style, not necessarily for grammatical purposes.
